Keeping up my fitness motivation

In January, I wrote about ‘the harsh realities of getting fit again’ when I first introduced exercise back into my daily routine. Since then, I’ve been working really hard to make sure that every week I’m either running, doing HIIT or going for a walk. But after a few month of exercise, it’s safe to […]

The harsh reality of getting fit again

At the start of the New Year in 2016, we all said that this would be the year that we would get into shape and finally get back to the body that we actually wanted. I didnโ€™t reach this point until February when I saw a picture of me that completely horrified me and had […]

Walking in Wales

Going for a walk is literally one of my favourite things to do in the world. And it’s often overlooked as a way to get some exercise in or in an attempt to get fit. But actually, walking is really good for your body and is pretty good for your mental health too. Regular walks […]

How many miles should I be running to lose fat?

I’m a big fan of running and it’s usually my go to exercise. This isn’t because I’m good at it, I’m not particularly. It’s just because I find it to be a great way to relax, unwind and it does help me to keep my weight under control. But I’ve read so many articles that […]

Starting The Squat Challengeย 

So guys, I’ve now finished university and have decided that I want to take the summer to get in shape. For those of you who’ve read my blog before, you’ll know I’m a big fan of running. But although this burns calories and is good cardio, I wanted to shape my legs a little better […]

My Morning Run

I’ve been really excited about fitness since I’ve decided to get fit again. I’ll hold my hands up and admit I’m not a crazed fitness fanatic. I just like exercising as a hobby and because I want to keep slim and in shape. But since it’s January and it’s been a while since I’ve been […]

Spinning For Cardio

This week I attempted my first spin class. I know, two new classes in one week was extremely brave and potentially disastrous. But I wanted to try spin because I know it’s good for helping you increase your cardio and it’s good resistance exercise for my muscles. Also, I sort of wanted to know if […]

My First Kettlebell Class

This week, my friend suggested we go to a kettlebell class and considering she has a body that loads of girls would die for and she goes to this class a lot, I thought, yeah sure. Usually I tend to avoid weight training classes because I’m always scared I won’t be able to keep up […]

Thinner, Leaner, Stronger.

So, I have one friend who is a complete fitness enthusiast and I am constantly asking him questions about health and fitness stuff, especially when I get a bit down about not progressing. I think when you’re trying to get in shape, it’s important to know what you’re doing so you don’t go into it […]
